Wristbands to raise money for late Tony Webster’s scholarship fund

Mercer County

A former coach of late Bluefield High School football player, Tony Webster, created a way to raise money for his scholarship fund.

Rusty Coeburn of Bluefield made wristbands that read, ‘Tony Webster, Humble and Blessed,’ to sell in businesses around the Bluefield area. Webster was a student and football player at Bluefield High School, who died in January after he collapsed while lifting weights.

All proceeds from the wristbands will go to the ‘Lil Tony Webster Forever 5’ scholarship fund that was created by the Webster family. The goal for the scholarship fund is to give a scholarship annually to Mercer County students.

The bracelets can be purchased for $5.00 at places like Pita Pit in Princeton, The Blue Spoon Café, and Anytime Fitness.
